Description: South African knifemaker Andre van Heerden creates an amazing folder -- and at a price that could never be found from an American maker.
The clip point blade has silky-smooth action and is perfectly centered. The mosaic damascus used throughout the knife was forged by Ettoré Gianferarri, ensuring that the patterns will be unique and different from those generally found on the American market. Both the blade and bolsters are extremely complex and immediately grab attention.
Presentation grade mammoth ivory scales incorporate blue, black and caramel tones. The colors found in mammoth ivory are a result of minerals close to the ivory under the ground. The colors throughout this presentation mammoth ivory are particularly dramatic and rare. The scales are nicely dovetailed to the bolsters for a perfect fit. Titanium liners have been anodized and surround the stainless steel backbar. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
